A family in Katani, Machakos County is seeking justice after two brothers impregnated twin sisters.
The girls’ father, Zablon Moseti claimed his daughters, aged 16, confessed to him that they had been impregnated by the two brothers, one of them being his landlord.
He reported the matter at Mlolongo Police Station and the two suspects were arrested.
Upon interrogation, they too confessed to impregnating the two girls. One of the suspects has since gone underground.
The other suspect was arrested on Friday and detained at Athi-River Police Station but was released on a cash bail of Sh 50,000 on medical grounds.
Athi-River sub-county police boss Catherine Ringera said police have launched a manhunt for the suspect on the run.
“We have since opened a file on the unfortunate incident involving the sisters. We have received a medical report on the pregnancy status of the girls and investigations into the incident has commenced,” said Ringera.
He said the suspect will be arraigned at the Mavoko Law court on Monday.
The girls’ father now appeals to the relevant bodies to intervene, to bring to book child predators.
There has been an outcry in the past that the number of teenage pregnancies has been on a steady rise during the Covid-19 period.
This has been blamed on the closure of schools in a bid to contain the pandemic.
